Jrue Holiday of the Philadelphia 76ers is killing me in my fantasy basketball league. His shooting percentage from the floor, .427, has really dragged me down in that category. I drafted him as the 40th player off the board, which seemed about right at that time.
But I could have waited a few rounds and had Ty Lawson instead. Lawson has a shooting percentage from the floor of .473 and has 40 more assists than Holiday. Even further down in the draft sequence, Tony Parker is shooting at a .455 clip and has over 100 more assists than Holiday.
Holiday has more steals than these other two points guards, but that doesn't make up for the other categories.
So let's look at how other key 76ers players are performing for their fantasy managers this year. Since the 76ers use their bench heavily and the scoring gets spread around, you won't find Sixers players among the highest ranked players in fantasy world. But just as they do for Doug Collins, they can be productive in filling in specific needs for your team.
